    Why there is no Acid Gun for AR?

    I’m pretty early on in the game (Lv. 21) and have used the AR very little so far. Up until now I’ve been using pistols and a shotgun. Just got the Avenger AR, and already have the acid pistol.

    I curious, what’s the best strategy for using ARs? As your primary weapon and shooting them from a distance, eating through your ammo? Or do you just use it when the enemies move right up? Plus there’s always a few armored guys in any fight, and you don’t want to wait until THEY move up close, so seems you’d still be using some kind of armor killing pistol most of the time (i.e. long distance fighting). The problem is, I’m finding my pistols too weak for some fights.

      Steve, first i’d let you know i’m newbier than you, just got to Lv12 and still relies on my upgraded Strombreaker & still no upgrade on the Fighter AR.

      For now i’m thinking to rely on the Pistol as much as possible because 1st it does the same Regular Damage as the AR, and 2nd its ammo is FREE.

      For early players like myself the Fighter AR is kind of 2nd sub-tier with the Stormbreaker Pistol as the 1st sub-tier, and either Vulcan MG & Chopper Shotgun in sub-tiers more advanced than the two above. Because i don’t have the last two yet. All four are noob weapons
